Sisters Three Farm is a small eight acre farm located in Mendon, Massachusetts near the Rhode Island and Connecticut borders. My daughters and I raise show quality Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats and are registered with the American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA). My goats are raised with love and care and are placed in show homes as well as pet homes. I am available by appointment to show the herd or sell wool. I conduct rug hooking classes on one Saturday a month and every Thursday. Please contact me to put your name on a waiting list.
My story begins with my three daughters, Olivia, Emma, and Molly wanting to learn about farm animals. I found two local 4-H groups and the girls joined both; horses and goats. We liked the horses but fell in love with goats. I looked into different breeds and liked the Nigerian Dwarf goats and felt that their miniature size was the perfect match for us little women. We started with two twin does, went to shows and had a wonderful time. Goat people are so friendly and getting help and advice was so easy. When we had our first kids born I felt it was only right to name our herd Sisters Three, after my daughters who got me involved with Dairy Goats. As the years progressed I learned through Linear Appraisal, Milk Test, and became involved in 4-H; leading a small group, putting on workshops both state and local. At the height of our goat adventure we added American Saanen, large, sweet, milking goats with mellow low voices. As I age I have re-homed the Saanen and reduced my workload by re- focusing on the Nigerian Dwarf.
During these years I made time for myself and nurtured my desire to be creative by sewing, weaving, soapmaking Oxford punch needle, Russian punch needle and Traditional rug hooking. I found my first teacher Jessie Prentice at the Hopedale Community House. Fifteen years later I still hook there and continue to explore the art and craft of rug hooking by dying wool, challenging myself to hook the different styles of primitive and fine shading.
